Executive Summary

In this paper, backup and recovery technique for peer-to-peer applications, such as a distributed asynchronous web-based training system that the authors have previously proposed. In order to improve the scalability and robustness of this system, all contents and function are realized on mobile agents. These agents are distributed to computers, and they can obtain using a peer-to-peer network that modified content-addressable network. In the proposed system, although entire services do not become impossible even if some computers break down, the problem that contents disappear occurs with an agent's disappearance. As a solution for this issue, backups of agents are distributed to computers. If a failure of a computer is detected, other computers will continue service using backups of the agents belonged to the computer.
